Often known as the bulrush or reedmace bug, this species is associated with Greater Reedmace and found across much of England, although less commonly in northern and western areas. Recently recorded from Scotland.
There are several generations a year, and adults may be found pairing (often on bulrush heads) any time between spring and autumn, at least in the south. Adults overwinter inside the seedheads.
